If you want to store items that have monetary or sentimental value, such as valuable furniture or family heirlooms, you may want to consider a climate-controlled storage unit. Summertime brings in the heat into Vancouver, making some days nearly unbearable from June through August. In the wintertime, however, the weather conditions become unbearable in opposite ways, when the temperatures drop down around zero.
With weather that can be so extreme on both ends of the temperature gauge, climate-controlled Vancouver storage units will protect your precious belongings from climate-related catastrophes.
Climate Control, In a Nutshell
Vancouver storage units that are climate-controlled remain at a consistent and moderate temperature all year long. Humidity is also kept at the same level year-round to ensure furniture does not warp or crack, whether it is summer or winter. The walls of climate-controlled units are also insulated to keep the interior the same climate and free of moisture that could jeopardize your precious valuables and furniture you inherited or worked so hard to earn.
Items That Are Climate-Sensitive
While this is not a complete list, it should help you to determine whether or not you are storing items that will be sensitive to heat, cold, or humidity. If you are planning to store any of the following climate-sensitive items, you may want to consider a climate-controlled storage unit:
- Collectibles – antiques, artwork, such as paintings, drawings, posters, classic cars, wine
- Electronics – Audio equipment, cameras, computers, stereos
- Household and Personal Items – appliances, books, clothing, family heirlooms, history records
- Media – cassettes, CDs, negatives, photos, photo albums
- Sensitive Materials – glass, leather, metal, plastic
Other Climate Control Benefits
Besides the fact that you do not have to worry about your climate-sensitive items that are made of wood, plastic, or paper warping in the warmer weather or cracking in the colder weather, there are other crucial benefits of climate control, as well. If you are worried about the higher cost of climate-controlled storage units, you should really weigh the benefits first. Ultimately, the cost of storing your valuable items in a climate-controlled storage unit is much less than having to purchase everything new all over again when you need it.
Additionally, your belongings are kept safe and secure in a Vancouver storage unit, so you can feel at ease that nothing will happen to the items of monetary or sentimental value that you are storing, especially if you are planning to store them for a significant amount of time. Finally, as you are sifting through the boxes in your storage unit, trying to find something you packed away, you will enjoy a comfortable environment while you are searching.
